Ready to See the Rest of the Family
The week in Smyer is almost over. Michael's mom continues to improve and getting more independent every day. Her physical therapist told her she may not need to come for therapy very much longer. The first week I was here she was in a wheelchair part of the time and using a walker the rest. Now she walks with a cane and even does without it around the house sometimes.
Yesterday she got to return to her water aerobics class. While she was gone her maid was going to be cleaning her house so the children and I got to go visit a long time and very dear friend, Tonya. It was so great to get to see her again. And, of course, her two children had grown and were just as nice as ever. My children had a great time playing with them. I also had an opportunity to ask some quilting questions but mostly we just enjoyed a nice visit about how the Lord was working in our lives and perfecting us both. I met her way back in the mid nineties when I was attending church because that is what "good parents do for their children." We both have been through so many changes since then. I look forward to the next time we get to see each other.
My dad is driving down from Amarillo tomorrow. Jennifer, Robert and I are looking forward to seeing him and his wife, Judy. Then Michael's dad will get home tomorrow and on Saturday he will drive us to Sweetwater to meet Michael. I am looking forward to seeing everyone back home. I hope the mud dries up by then.
